Ahead of reopening for its 2023 season on Friday 17 March, The LEGOLAND Windsor Resort has started work on its exciting multi-million-pound vision to create the UK’s first LEGO Woodland-themed holiday village.

Divisional Director for LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, Helen Bull, who was accompanied by Merlin Entertainments COO, John Jakobsen, MP for Maidenhead, Theresa May, and Council Leader, Andrew Johnson, along with her trusted life-size replica DUPLO spade to celebrate work starting onsite, said:

Breaking ground on LEGOLAND Woodland Village is a significant milestone in the history of one of the UK’s much loved family entertainment theme parks.

Our vision to create the first LEGO themed Woodland village is an innovative way of demonstrating how LEGOLAND Windsor Resort will continue to meet the growing needs of our guests and will be a major economic boost for the local area providing high quality and sustainable tourism for the future.

LEGOLAND 2024

John Jakobsen, Chief Operating Officer for the LEGOLAND Resorts Group, said: 

Today’s announcement for LEGOLAND Windsor acts as a blueprint for future accommodation sites, we may create in the other nine LEGOLAND Parks we have globally. Merlin Entertainments have a clear focus on moving to becoming a leader in our industry for carbon neutral location-based entertainment.

We have been working actively to implement and maintain sustainability across our LEGOLAND Parks, as well as our other hotels and attractions. We continue to review our working methods, procedures and purchasing, to enable us to establish our overall objective to help ‘build better’ and make the world a more awesome place for future generations.

Cllr Andrew Johnson, Leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, said: 

We are delighted that Merlin Entertainments has chosen to make this multi-million-pound investment here in the Royal Borough, made possible by the Council’s 2018 decision to approve these plans.

Our recently adopted ‘Vision for Windsor’ is clear that world class attractions such as LEGOLAND Windsor Resort have an important role to play in drawing tourists to this corner of Berkshire.

additional visitor accommodation will enable families to stay longer locally, giving them time to enjoy much of what Windsor has to offer as a thriving and welcoming town. We recognise the significant benefits that this development will bring to the Royal Borough, not least in terms of the additional jobs and apprenticeships which will be made available for local people.

LEGOLAND Woodland Lodges

The Woodland Village’s operational energy will be fossil fuel free once complete and this will be the first operationally carbon-neutral accommodation built by LEGOLAND owner Merlin Entertainments, across its global theme park operations.

Merlin Entertainments and LEGOLAND Windsor will achieve this by working with The Carbon Trust on developing a robust carbon reduction plan, which will adopt low carbon technologies, energy efficiency and high-quality offsets.

LEGOLAND Windsor Resort continue to develop and invest, with the addition of new attractions for the 2023 season including LEGOLAND Ferrari Build and Race, and LEGOLAND Adventure Golf.
